When the wheels start turning, I can hear your voice say, “Stop. Hey. It’s gonna be okay.”

And because you believe in me; because you stand a little taller and can see what I can’t see…

I stop.
Breathe in.
It’s gonna be okay.


There is always some peace in having submitted to the right. Don’t spoil it by worrying about the results, if you can help it. It is not your business to succeed (no one can be sure of that) but to do right: when you have done so, the rest lies with God—and Will!

C.S. Lewis letter to Arthur Greeves, December 29, 1935

Take A Chance.

I don’t want to protect myself anymore.

I don’t want to guard myself against pain and devastation.

I don’t want to hold back from going “all in” because of the fear that there will be backlash should I be disappointed.

I don’t want to put up walls and defenses against the, “But what if’s…” or the, “Well, you never know’s…”

I want to put my self-preservation aside and all my eggs in one basket. I want to take the risk and be vulnerable and say, to heck with it all, I’m taking a chance. I’m going all in. Whatever the outcome, I’m going to believe the best and pray like crazy that the best will come.

I don’t want to be afraid.
I want to believe.

I choose to believe.
I choose to trust.
I choose to wait and see.

I choose to take a chance.

A great future doesn’t require a great past.

William Chapman  (via thatkindofwoman)

You make me like the way I look.
One day it will happen. Until then, we wait.

Have faith.

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.

Saint Patrick (via pureblyss)

Now that I have met you,
nothing that has ever mattered before
There are not enough beautiful things in this world to distract me from you.
